Learn the Skills that Employers are Demanding
Students in the Department of Communication examine the workings of our information society and the broad influence of the media. The department focuses on two areas—media studies and rhetoric. Students gain an understanding of media industries and learn to develop persuasive arguments and to communicate them effectively in speaking and writing. Combined with training in research methods and a robust internship program—students graduate with the critical thinking skills in high demand by employers.
